The increasing demand for clean processed water and mandatory government regulation to provide the population with clean drinking water is propelling the water processing industry including membrane separation. Shifting from chemical to physical treatments of water is also a major driver as chemical treatments are perceived as an environmentally unclean technology with associated disposal costs. Additional awareness of water scarcity has influenced the demand for water reuse in water stressed areas. Governments and municipal authorities are increasingly waking up to the effects of environmental degradation on the economy. Mandatory adherence of certain environmental standards by the national governments, especially in areas with water scarcity have influenced the demand for better water treatment technology, including membrane separation technology.
Worldwide industrial expansion and growing population are propelling the demand for better water treatment technology, providing growth opportunity for the overall market of membrane separation technology. Membrane separation technology is majorly divided into four major processes, microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
